Plug-ins

CakeMail and WordPress Work Together

Please note that a new WordPress plugin for CakeMail is available as of December 10, 2013.

This post is all about WordPress plugins. We’ve included a quick primer on how to use WP SuperMailer to help build your contact lists below, along with a link to more details. Feel free to get in touch with our support team to ask a question.

If you’re using CakeMail as well as using WordPress for your blog or website, you can easily add a subscription form for one of your contact lists using the WP SuperMailer plugin (built by the nice folks at Stresslimit Design).

Requirements:

  • WordPress Version: 3.0 or higher
  • PHP mcrypt extension installed on your server
  • A CakeMail account (create one here)
  • An Interface ID and Key (request one here)

The WordPress plugin installs just as with any other plugin:

  1. Download and extract wp-supermailer.zip from http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-super-mailer/
  2. Upload the wp-supermailer folder to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
  3. Activate the WP SuperMailer through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Once that’s finished, navigate to Settings > WP Super Mailer.

  1. Select “CakeMail”, then Save Changes
  2. Enter your CakeMail email address, password, interface key and interface id, then Save Changes

  •  Arkli also has a WordPress plugin, so if you’re using Arkli to help manage campaigns, you can easily import WordPress posts into Arkli, and sync that with your CakeMail email campaigns.
    Arkli’s WordPress plugin is only available for self-hosted WordPress installs, not blogs hosted on WordPress.com. 
    You should sign up for Arkli before downloading and installing it.
    Its available at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/arkli/ (or go to Add a Plugin, and search for Arkli in your WordPress admin.)
